Thanks for the links Arrigo, I hope you enjoy your printer its a real game changer. I think I went a little mad with the printing just to try it out but I now have a few more 28mm scale trucks and tanks than I can field! Before I start another project I will be making careful plans for what I need.

Printing your own stuff is certainly a game changer.

Just stumbled across this lot while looking for something else - https://hartolia-miniatures.fr/en/accueil/740-wild-west-pack.html


I haven't actually bought any of their models, but I'd be concerned about the totally overdone, unrealistic battle damage on all surfaces of the tanks. Not only does it look stupid, it also prevents you from printing more than one of the models.

A wee comment here.

If I recall, though Marco Bergman offers his stuff for free, he does (or did) have a comment to say anyone printing his vehicles may care to make a contribution to charity in return.  I think MS was his chosen cause. 

I think it's a worthwhile approach in return for free 3d files. 

regards,
Tom

While on the subject - anyone suggest decent WW2 aircraft STLs?  Nothing super precise, but more gamer friendly.  Struggling to find some decent ground attack options in 15mm (or similar scales).

there are any number of great free files available in 15mm on Thingiverse, search TigerAce as well. Eskice I find can be a bit 'cartoony' - paid files, Wargaming3d.

I have done vast numbers of prints in 15mm on a resin printer. (Anycubic Photon S) - and the quality is amazing. Most recently some Vietnam War 28mm stuff from BobMack3d.

In 28mm examples -

15mm

10mm

I think Marco Bergmann is Canadian...
New Zealander. He donates any tips or commercial licence revenue to a well-known NZ charity. The WW1 range is also impressive.
